Great car, very economical, comfortable and spacious. Best to give it premium fuel because the petrol engine doesn't work all the time, and its good to keep injectors cleam and work out cheaper in the long run.
Can’t go wrong
Ah yes the ever reliable corolla..
I went with it as it is one of the most attractive in its class, decent features for the money, mechincally, realibility & resale wise the best for its class & all within the amount I was willing to spend.
I don’t see it as bland as styling is good with great features.
Parts are plentiful for obvious reasons..
2013 Levin SX $10,000 in 2020 just under 100,000, bit of damage, would’ve been 12 otherwise.
Fuel consumption seems pretty good haven’t done any number crunching yet.
Very happy with it, Toyota’s in general have great build quality & can withstand severe neglect & most only need consumables e.g tyres, breaks replaced throughout their life time here on earth.
Purchased in July 2020.
I drive the car mainly for shopping & work 3-4 times a week and short trips to drop & pick-up kid from school. Fuel consumption is impressive, on average 3.9ltr/100kms. Overall this car is easy to operate, very quite on EV mode and very cheap to run - a trip to petrol station every second month. A great value for money if you are looking for a car that does the job, responsive, comfortable to ride and handles road bumps quite well especially when having sleeping small children on board, roomy without taking up much spaces in parking lot and tru...nk holds a good amount of 1 month worth groceries. Also, the wireless charging pad is so convenience even our more expensive car does not have this feature! This car is perfect for me. Couldn’t be happier.

The perfect budget family car for four with exceptional legroom and boot space. Very smooth and quiet.
2014 Corolla sedan, automatic, white with tinted windows, floor mats and boot liner mat.
We purchased our 2014 Corolla in late 2017 and have had it for nearly three years now. This car is used for local trips through the week with two young children (one rear facing child seat and one front facing child seat) and is our primary car over the weekend. Note: Product Review calls this model the E170 sedan. This may be a collective designation for both body shapes but it's called the ZRE172 everywhere else.

Perfect family car
I use the car for my work and shopping. It is a really reliable car for city and up to 100 km/ hr. It is okay for travelling within the state. Very cheap maintenance.

Perfect car for City Commuting
If you are looking for a small car to drive around the city - the Corolla is it. SUPER reliable, economical on fuel and low running costs. It’s quite zippy too with the 1.8L entire and CVT auto transmission. Never needed to replace anything - just regular oil changes and occasionally new tyres or break pads. Great Japanese car.
Toyota corolla is the best selling cars ever. Not recommend hybrid because of the major repair cost in the future. 1.8 liter patrol is the way to go with the cvt 7 speed transmission really smooth to drive.
Needs to be driven frequently to charge the hybrid battery
Have had my hybrid for 1 month. Was initially looking at the Lexus UX hybrid. But the Corolla was a sportier drive and had a nicer interior - plus was half the price. The Corolla is great to drive, has good visibility and has more technology than I can use. It is amazing driving in electric mode - so silent.
The only negative is that the hybrid battery is going flat because the car is not driven every day. When I enquired about this, I was told to take the car on a long drive.
The Toyota Australia website states the "high-voltage Hybrid 'tr...action battery' will never run out of charge, as it charges while you drive". However there is an article on the Toyota UK website dated 03 April 2020 which recommends, if not driven regularly, to idle the car for 60 mins at least once a week. During this 60 minutes the petrol engine kicks in to charge the hybrid battery. In all of my research before purchasing, I could not find any information about the charging of the hybrid battery. Idling in the garage, with the petrol enging on, for 1 hr a week defeats the purpose of why I wanted a hybrid vehicle.

Best car I've ever driven
Purchased this car two weeks ago and I loved it from the first time I saw it. I wasn't expecting to purchase a sedan as I've always driven SUV's but this car had everything and more that I needed and wanted. I feel really safe driving it and the Apple Car Play and Sat Nav makes it easy to navigate around the city (which I haven't driven in for over 20 years). I honestly am so happy with this.

Great reliable small car
Bought a new 2019 model in Jan 2020, came with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, easy to use Google Map in 8" colour touchscreen. Smooth driving, many safety features (haven't tried them all though), Hybrid engine (4.4L/100km for urban driving). Great reliable small car!
Purchased in January 2020.
I love my car. It’s sporty and looks great. It’s smooth to drive and has great fuel economy. The technologies in the car are up to date, with Apple car play now added as an optional extra. Boot could be bigger.
Gotta get one.
I have had so many cars over the years, this is one of the best. For a small car, plenty of room, has a great stereo system, smooth ride, and super comfy to drive. Plenty of power for a little car, I love it so much, and with Toyota, is super reliable.

Great small car
We use our family car for transport to work and general travel. The hatchback has plenty of room for putting my ebike in the back with seats down. It is very economical to drive this petrol automatic model and Brighton Toyota have been excellent at serving the car.
Purchased in November 2016 for A$22,000.00.
A fuel economic small car with comfortable space in front seat.
It is for my everyday use for commuting to work. Also I use it to go shopping, sports, and family transport over the weekend or long holidays. It was a brand new car bought in 2018. I get it serviced when I received email notifications from the vendor. So far, there was no issues mentioned by the mechanic in the last service.
